Jingle Rails Exhibit at Eiteljorg Museum

Sunday, January 19, 2020

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow (you know, since your kids are out of school for MLK Day), then the Eiteljorg Museum is the perfect spot to go to get out of your house and stay out of this crazy cold weather.

Tomorrow is also your last chance to get an incredible look at the Jingle Rails Exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum.  My family and I had the opportunity to visit the museum last month and let me just say that this is something you don't want to miss BUT if you do, there is always next Christmas.

Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure is a G-scale model train wonderland containing nine working model trains that wind through a stunning miniature landscape. The exhibit features miniature versions of local treasures of downtown Indianapolis, including the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station and Lucas Oil Stadium. The trains then head through the national parks of the American West, passing legendary sites, including grand railway lodges, Northwest Coast Native villages, and wonders both natural and human-made—Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite Falls, Old Faithful, the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam and much more.  Y'all that's nearly 1,200 feet of track!!  Did I mention that Old Faithful actually erupts?! What?!

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and historic Spanish Colonial missions of the Southwest, including The Alamo are both new this year, absolutely amazing and my personal favorite.  The Speedway even has a working course with race cars whizzing around in circles.  My girls thought that was the coolest.

My pictures really do not do this exhibit justice and it is something I highly recommend seeing in person.  We even took our twins (there's plenty of room for strollers) and they enjoyed looked at all the moving trains and the Christmas Lights.

They even have a set up of the Indiana State Fair with a working Ferris Wheel.  It really is incredible and going to the Eiteljorg Museum over the holidays is definitely going to be a new tradition for our family each year.  You can learn more and purchase your tickets by clicking here.

We even had a family photo opp with a near-life-size train engine model, made of all-natural materials.  It was really cool and the girls could even go inside of it! So fun!  

Thank you Eiteljorg Museum and TheCityMoms for having us out over the holidays!
